  1. Seeing as we've finished the other bracket game and it was a success, I have managed a way to do another one. So this is the R+L headliner bracket tournament (Leeds started in 1999 so headliners since then, not including this year). Had to include a preliminary round thing to awkwardly fit them in but it should work. The game is not "who put on the best headline set?" because nobody has seen all of them. It's just "who is the best act to have headlined so far in that time?". Voting windows are midnight to midnight and there are two ties to vote on per day until we reach the quarter finals. However, the qualifying round has an odd number of ties and today isn't a full day so vote on the first three ties until the end of tomorrow (00:00 Saturday). Those ties are: The Prodigy vs. Queens of the Stone Age The Killers vs. Arctic Monkeys Mumford & Sons vs. Paramore Same tie-break rules as last time; it's all on the first person who hasn't yet cast their vote to come along and cast their vote to decide. Also no new accounts signing up just to vote cos that's weird - at least throw a comment in another thread or something to make it less obvious. Finally if the qualifying round thing is confusing anyone, just know that: Saturday will be Smashing Pumpkins vs. The Charlatans / Biffy Clyro vs. The Strokes. Sunday will be Muse vs. The White Stripes / Razorlight vs. Franz Ferdinand Monday will be Pixies vs. The Libertines / Pearl Jam vs. Fall Out Boy Tuesday will be Disclosure vs. Foals / Foo Fighters vs. Iron Maiden Wednesday the first round proper will start and you'll vote on the first two ties in that round. Have fun. Let me know if you need anything explaining.

    Ok the Oxford lads are into the quarters. End of Round of 16 and here's the state of things: Now down to one tie per day. Today is: Queens of the Stone Age vs. Rage Against the Machine

    I think Brazil will drop into 2nd and scupper any talk of choice quarter finals anyway. The second round isn't gonna be a piece of piss anyroad so I'd rather we play whoever only manages 2nd in H.

    Were they a mess in 2006? I thought that was the other two tournaments. If Germany 2002 weren't decent then I don't see how this German side would increase the status of the tournament.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    He has got massive hits by way of his old band, sure. He still doesn't have a reason to be headlining the Pyramid. Loads of acts play the Pyramid with lots of hits that lots of people know but it still doesn't justify a headline spot. Madness, for example. I could see him having been lined up for a Pyramid sub slot at some point when he was at the crest of his wave, but I think everyone involved knows it's downhill from here.

    Yeah, as fun as a Sweden result would’ve been for us, they fluffed great chances to establish a lead and didn’t make the advantage count either. And Germany didn’t put on a masterclass or anything, they just capitalised on their chances better in the end. Definitely deep problems in the German camp though - judging by events leading up to this game and the bench’s reaction to Boateng’s red - so I’m not convinced there’s a great revival about to happen.

    You have to pick one or the other. The one of Muse and Chili Peppers.

    You’re right. It was rather forgettable.

    They still have the likes of Kovacic, Badelj and Kramaric on the bench, right? Possible that they could switch players out and still find a result. Group E is now pretty interestingly set. If the Swiss register a better result against eliminated Costa Rica than Brazil do against a good Serbia team playing for survival, they top the group on GD/GS. Would be more interesting if it meant avoiding Germany but whatever.

    Nigeria really turned up in this second half. I’ve been proven well wrong. I feel like Argentina might have been better off with the goal difference route against a poor Nigeria than having to get a win against a good one.

    Spare a thought for Spoon, whose album last year was the most popular on here at some point early in the year when people did their lists, and completely forgotten about by the end of the year.

    2019 Headliners

    Yes I understand why people are predicting them regardless. They must have already done a greatest hits on the Pyramid though, they’ll have to do a fan voted one... that ends up identical to a greatest hits set. Maybe they can do a greatest hits of Glastonbury where they walk out miming Wonderwall, run through Satisfaction, Tender, Outlaw Pete, get Tricky on for Baby Boy and close the set with Plastic Fox and firework display.

    Lmao. Messi picks the team, doesn’t he? Would be a laugh to see them bench Messi, start Di Maria, Higuain, Dybala and Banega and overturn the deficit to take them through.

    2019 Headliners

    Yeah. It’s unlikely that they’ll have a record out until after the 2020 festival as well, given that they’re properly on break so won’t be knocking out surprise releases this time. Martin will probably show up during Beyoncé’s set though, if people think that it’s not Glastonbury without him.

    They never said they wanted massive headliners for the 50th. That's what we said. Anyway, why would it matter if they rebooked Beyoncé if they've got Coldplay (who I may add are on a touring break until 2021) doing it for a fifth time? She's much bigger and better now than 2011. Book Beyoncé. Do it!

    2019 Headliners

    I don't see Elton John's last appearance on these shores being an afternoon slot leading up to either a headline-grabbing Paul McCartney or Beatles reunion. They could surely bin off one of the others for The Reg. I think the special guest factor might be more of a thing, like they did with the 40th anniversary. And it'll largely be business as usual but there might be a few special events and new features around the site. That seems more reasonable than a fantasy fest/greatest hits blowout, and more sustainable for future years, and it'll probably be less disappointing as well. What's the point though? Just get Beyoncé lol. And I say that as a bigger Jigga fan.

    2019 Headliners

    Beyonce and Jay Z toured together and brought out an album together this year. I don't think it's incredibly likely that they're just gonna keep doing that now. What's better than one billionaire? Two.

    2019 Headliners

    Yeah the rewarding live experience is something very obvious that I hadn't factored in smdh. The things Mash said about Blur changing it up for the better granting them some goodwill among writers and music buffs are probably quite relevant when I think about it too.
